How Does One Create A Website That Can Be Viewable On Mobile Phones?
you will have to use [google]WML[/google].
Can't I Use Frontpage Instead Because I Don't Have Experience With WML? Or Isn't There A Simpler Web Creating Software?
AceHTML and it's free
It's not about the software, it's about the markup-code used to create the site - creating HTML pages means a mobile device has to support HTML to view it. If the device doesn't support it then it won't work, simple as.
More and more modern devices support (x)HTML and 'mobile' sites that use (x)HTML are often just optimised and coded for use with devices with small screens and a slow connection (minimal images etc)
Can't I Create A Page Using Html And Have Some Software Convert The Language To WML For Me?
The structure of WML is different to (x)HTML so I'm not sure of any software that would do it.
Having To Code Language Is The Thing Of The Past As I Believe, Nowadays There Are Graphical User Interface Softwares That Code Language In The Background. Im F ...ed Because I Now Have To Go Through A Tutorial.
If you believe that and have that view on coding then I'm afraid you're going to lose out.
I code everything by hand, why? Because it gives me a better understanding of what I'm creating, granted there are tools to help but coding via a graphical (WYSIWYG) editor means you get complacent and may miss thing / make mistakes.
You can use a WYSIWYG editor if it suits you, just realise that the code behind it is what's important, not the WYSIWYG editor used to create it.
Ok Dude Tanx For That But I Can't Use The Software Because I Don't Have The Serial Code So Im Guessing It's Not Free So What Now Matt?
Well if you really want to, use another WYSIWYG editor, I don't know of any that natively support WML, nor can I recommend one as I don't use them.
If you're going to code 'by hand', I recommend jEdit for Windows or Smultron for OS X (what I use).
Perhaps buy a product key for the software you're trying to use if you want to use it that desperately?
I've Never Needed Software Desperately Enough To Purchase
What If I Code Using Html And Keeping Everything Small (Graphic, No Background Colour, Images, Compressed Audio/Video) Wouldn't That Be Easily Accessible By Mobile Then?
If the mobile device's browser supports (x)HTML then you can. You'll want to keep your page size as low as possible as data-downloading on mobile devices can be costly, very costly.
Is There Another Site Were I Can Download The WML Converter Add-Ins For Frontpage (2003) Besides The Microsoft Site?
WML converter for Frontpage - Google Search
Look through those results, you may come across something, I don't use frontpage, nor do I code WML so I'm not experienced on the subject.
Now Im Having Trouble Creating The Mail Box Which Visitors Can Send Their Comments To, Is There Any 3rd Party Software I Can Use?
Is this a script you've written to handle form input and send it to an e-mail address or is it a form that inserts data into a database?
Your post's a little vague.
